The Last Song For My Resting Place

  • Mother, father
    Thank you so
    For the keeping the fires burning on
    Brother, brother
    For giving shelter
    Throughout those years of war

    Go now that it's nearly over
    After a long night in wait
    I've soothed every soul with a last comfort
    But mine, whoa, ooh

    I believe in love
    And you need to know
    That my hearts in your embrace
    Now I'm leaving well
    But I've been through hell
    One last song for my resting place

    I grew up on a family farm
    Where the wheat grows like gold
    I played his music
    He forgave my sins
    As foretold in the books of old

    Go now that it's nearly over
    After a long night in wait
    I've soothed every soul with a last comfort
    But mine, whoa, ooh

    I believe in love
    And you need to know
    That my hearts in your embrace
    Now I'm leaving well
    But I've been through hell
    One last song for my resting place

    Dear Boli, enjoy your life
    Always know that I'm by your side
    These are fortunes
    Worse than war
    Beyond my reach and I have no more

    My father said
    Upon his death
    Son, don't shed a tear for me
    Misses Robinson
    My only life
    Give it to God, then to thee

    Go now that it's nearly over
    After a long night in wait
    I've soothed every soul with a last comfort
    But mine, whoa, ooh

    I believe in love
    And you need to know
    That my hearts in your embrace
    Now I'm leaving well
    But I've been through hell
    One last song for my resting place

    Oh, my father said
    On his death bed
    Son, don't shed those tears for me
    Misses Robinson
    Lord, you are my love
    Give it to God, then to thee

    Oh, Maria
    I loved you so
    The heart grows fonder
    As I go

    Please think of me
    As I sleep
    From beyond the ship
    To the deep
